The Best of Student Shooters (B.O.S.S.) Youth League hosted the second annual Selma May Day and Haitian Flag Day Charity Festival last month at its Youth Complex.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson participated in a “Dunk the DA” booth. It took 20 attempts before Jackson fell into the water.

“BOSS League is a great organization that steers kids and young adults from gang life,” Jackson said. “They do this by getting them involved with basketball and taking them on field trips and events. We are all trying to get these kids headed in the right direction.”

Several kids at the Selma May Day participated in a 3 on 3 basketball tournament.

The charity festival also commemorated the history of Haiti and its annual Flag Day celebration. 

CEO and co-Founder of BOSS Youth League, Querline Stsurin-Moore is a Haitian female Entrepreneur. She thanked Selma City School superintendent Dr. Avis Williams and Community Engagement Specialis Courtney Washington, Jimmie Coleman, Adrienne Lee (ECA), and the Selma Fire Department.

“This occasion brings the community together to continue to promote unity and togetherness for the sake of our youth,” Moore said.

Moore’s husband, Derriet Moore, who co-founded the non-profit organization in 2011, loved the support.

“The outpouring of support B.O.S.S Youth League has received from the public is truly amazing,” Moore said.
